December 2015 dates

Degree Congregations will be held between 9-11 December 2015.

The specific date and time of each Degree Congregation will only be confirmed in October 2015, once it has been confirmed by the Senate of the University. Unfortunately we are unable to give any indication of dates and times before this time. Please note that the allocation of Schools does not typically follow a pattern, therefore we would strongly advise graduands to only make travel or accommodation plans once this information is available.

Attending the right Degree Congregation

Once you have confirmed your attendance at a Degree Congregation you will be emailed a link to our Graduand information website in April/November. This website contains all of the information you will need to prepare for your Degree Congregation, and includes details of your gown hire, tickets, ceremony dates, times, locations and commonly asked questions regarding the Degree Congregation itself.

Checking the date and time

We strongly advise all graduands to check the date and time of their Degree Congregation via www.my.bham.ac.uk. Please do not rely solely on this information. To check the specific date and time for your Degree Congregation please log on to the portal, click on the myProgress tab and then the Degree Congregations link. Select your programme of study, click Submit and the following screen will display the date and time of your Degree Congregation.

To further assist we have also listed School Degree Congregation dates in alphabetical order.
